Tenafeate Creek Wines Pinot Grigio 2015

I was impressed by the neat packaging here. Simple yet effective. The glass with a shade of green masks the colour of the wine which was clever (the image right doesn't do it justice). Clever because the appearance is bronzed, a slight copper perhaps. Many would assume Pinot Grigio is a pure "white" but the colour as presented here adds that point of difference for me.

Attractively scented with crisp fruit and textural interest. A tidy wine and modestly priced for $20. I reckon they could chase another $5 and still get it. Freshly cut pear and apple characters sit pretty before a wash of minerality rounds up the tail. That apple sits long on a generous finish. I'd happily go here again.

290 dozen produced.

Very good.
